Breed: Amazing mutt
Age: 8 weeks old
With a face this cute you need an equally adorable name! Meet Winx
Little Winx had a bout of bad luck. She was brought into Kern County Animal Services with road rash and her eye bulging out of its socket. As crummy as her luck had been things were about to turn around for this little girl. The shelter vet treated her wounds and removed her eye and her little face won us over winky eye and all.
Winx is settling into foster care with a pretty amazing foster family. She’s only about 8 weeks old and we currently have no idea what her breed mixes might be. We do suspect she’ll be at least a medium size dog when full grown. We love that she will always look like she’s up to a bit of mischief or has the best secret ever to share with her very best friends. We have a feeling there will be many that love this about her too.
Winx will be adoption ready in approximately 1 month. We are currently accepting applications for her and will review all applications received closer to the time she is adoption ready.
Here’s what you need to know about adopting a cat or dog from Marley's Mutts:
Each adoptable pet will be introduced on Facebook
Each pet will have its own profile here on the website
All pets will be spayed or neutered
All pets will be micro-chipped and shots will be up-to-date
Each pet has their own application to complete—make sure you use the right one (linked from their bio)
It’s important to us that each pet goes not just to a great home but to the “right” home. Our foster parents work with each pet to get to know them and their needs.
We try hard to list all of the pertinent info about each pet on the site so you can choose the pet that will fit with your family/lifestyle. If you don’t see a specific pet on the site, he/she is not ready for adoption. Please be patient and wait until the bio is listed. We don’t decide on a “first come, first served” basis but rather on a “who’s the very best fit.” So, don’t panic.
It’s not a quick process. We receive dozens of applications for each pet so please be patient. If you’re shortlisted you’ll be contacted as soon as possible.
If selected to meet one of our pets and you currently have pets, you’ll be asked to do an in-person pet intro; we don’t do the long-distance adoption thing. If you live out of town, plan a fun road trip to meet the pet in person.
Don’t be discouraged if your application is not selected. Remember, we get a lot of them! Trust us, the best fit for you is coming.
If you’re lucky and you do adopt a super amazing pet from Marley’s Mutts, don’t ever hesitate to reach out to us for training, medication, or behavior questions. We’re here for you, and your pet.
